Hi there,

From what i understand, the EditFormType property affects inserts AND updates.  Is it possible to use different methods for each approach?

For example...
 
I have a grid that displays a list of products.  I want to use a custom usercontrol for the insert so that users may "search" for a product before inserting a new one.  For updates however, i just want to use the auto-generated "update" row.

Is this possible?

Hello Nick,

You can try out the following code to display a UserControlForm for InsertMode of the grid and the auto-generated form for EditMode.
cs:
 protected void RadGrid1_ItemCommand(object source, GridCommandEventArgs e) 
    {        
     if (e.CommandName == RadGrid.InitInsertCommandName) 
      { 
           e.Canceled = true
           RadGrid1.EditIndexes.Clear(); 
           e.Item.OwnerTableView.EditFormSettings.EditFormType = GridEditFormType.WebUserControl; 
           e.Item.OwnerTableView.EditFormSettings.UserControlName = "WebUserControl.ascx"
           e.Item.OwnerTableView.InsertItem(); 
      } 
     else if (e.CommandName == RadGrid.EditCommandName) 
       { 
           e.Item.OwnerTableView.IsItemInserted = false
           e.Item.OwnerTableView.EditFormSettings.EditFormType = GridEditFormType.AutoGenerated; 
            
       } 
   } 
       

Thanks
Princy.

Thanks Princy, this achieves the desired behaviour, however i can now no longer add and edit at the same time. As soon as i click "Edit", the add usercontrol disappears and vice versa.

I figured as an alternative, that i might instead be able to set the EditFormType to WebUserControl and just pass a value of "Edit" or "Add" to the usercontrol to get it to display in two seperate modes.

I tried this with the following code, however the first line (where i attempt to retrieve the usercontrol) always returns null.  Any ideas?

 

protected void RadGrid_ItemCommand(object source, GridCommandEventArgs e)  
{  
    MyUserControl userControl = (MyUserControl)e.Item.FindControl(GridEditFormItem.EditFormUserControlID);  
 
    switch (e.CommandName)  
    {  
        case RadGrid.InitInsertCommandName:  
            myUserControl.Mode = ModeEnum.Add;  
            break;  
 
            case RadGrid.EditCommandName:  
            myUserControl.Mode = ModeEnum.Edit;  
            break;  
    }

Hi,

Try accessing the UserControl in the ItemDataBound event and set the mode to add or edit .Try altering the code below:

CS:
   protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e) 
    { 
 
 
        if ((e.Item.ItemType == Telerik.WebControls.GridItemType.EditFormItem) && (e.Item.IsInEditMode)) 
        { 
            
            MyUserControl userControl = (MyUserControl)e.Item.FindControl(GridEditFormItem.EditFormUserControlID); 
 
 
            myUserControl.Mode = ModeEnum.Edit; 
        } 
 
 
        if (e.Item is GridEditFormInsertItem) 
        { 
 
            MyUserControl userControl = (MyUserControl)e.Item.FindControl(GridEditFormItem.EditFormUserControlID); 
 
 
            myUserControl.Mode = ModeEnum.Add; 
        } 
 
    } 

Thanks,
Princy
